Members of institutions (with orgnames) and teams can use combined folders. Located in the “shared” folder within the private tubCloud directory, they will be set up automatically.
Every institution has 500GB storage at its disposal. Teams need to share their storage with their institution.

Name of shared folder: consists of the domain name followed by “_member” ({orgname}_member)
Quota: 500GB
Members: all employees belonging to the institution
Rights: read and write

The synchronisation of the shared folder may have to be adjusted for the clients.
